It is not widely known that there exists a simple yet effective machinery which enables a person who has suffered damage from a space object to recover for such loss. This machinery has been created in the Convention on International Liability for Damage Caused by Space Objects which was created under the auspices of the United Nations Organization and came into effect in March 1972.
